Dear Friend of Liberty,
This week our campaign announced the endorsement of the Gun Owners of America Political Victory Fund. GOA-PVF raises funds to support the election of pro-Second Amendment candidates at all levels of government. I am honored that the GOA recognizes that my “commitment to the right to keep and bear arms is unwavering.”
The Founders believed it so vital to the maintenance of ordered liberty, they wrote it into the Constitution, so that their generation and the millions of Americans to follow would experience this freedom.
Mark Begich claims to be a supporter of this cherished right, but as is often the case, his votes do not match his rhetoric. He received a “D” rating from the Gun Owners of America.
The junior senator’s votes against our Second Amendment rights are shocking. Begich — “as independent as Alaska” — voted to confirm Eric Holder, the most anti-gun Attorney General in the history of the United States. For that matter, he has been a rubber stamp for Barack Obama’s nominees, including the new ATF director, Todd Jones, who refused to discipline any of the agents who orchestrated the infamous “Operation Fast and Furious.”
Begich also opposed the Mike Lee constitutional amendment, which would require a two-third’s majority in Congress to pass gun control legislation.
The senator opened the door to more anti-gun judges on the bench by voting for the so-called “nuclear option.” One of the main objects of that rule change by the Democrats was to stack the DC Circuit Court, the second most powerful in the nation, with three liberal justices, all anti-gun, all supported by Begich, potentially putting the landmark Heller decision in jeopardy.
Senator Begich voted to confirm Caitlin Hallagan to the federal bench, who as New York’s Solicitor General was one of the main litigators responsible for seeking to bankrupt the state’s gun manufacturers through frivolous lawsuits. The list goes on. He voted for ObamaCare with its gun reporting requirements and that information will be used to deny Americans their right to keep and bear arms, as over 150,000 veterans already have been.
Mark Begich does not support the Second Amendment.
Let’s send a message to Washington that we, as Americans, will preserve and protect our constitutional rights against all enemies, foreign and domestic.
In the fight,
Joe Miller, candidate
United States Senate
